Full description
Search for the Northern Lights in the comfort of a super jeep. Go where tour buses can't and learn all about this amazing natural phenomenon from an English-speaking guide in a small group setting. Discover firsthand why people from all over the world flock to Iceland in the winter in search of the Aurora Borealis. The Northern Lights are a memorable site and everyone who has seen them will tell you why – they are completely mesmerizing. Given cloudless skies and a little bit of luck, sightings can occur from autumn to early spring. The locals say that the colder it is, the more vibrant and intense the colors will be. Swirling and swaying overhead, the Northern Lights are usually greenish yellow but white, red, and pink lights also frequently appear.

Bit sceptical about carrying on with the trip after reading negative reviews but am so glad I carried on. What an amazing experience!! Our guide was both knowledgeable and experienced and really looked after the whole group, we were lucky to have him and he picked an amazing location which ensured we have some amazing memories of iceland.

It was terrible from start to finish.First off our hotel staff and other tourists we spoke to that day told us lots of Companies in the area had cancelled their trips cause of cloudy weather and there was no point. They knew we would see nothing.This company however insisted the trip would go ahead . On arrival of the vehicle I could not believe it , a normal coach for 50 People would be much more comfortable And spacious . This was no “super Jeep” it was a Mini bus on big wheels and we were so crammed in in the back row with another couple that I couldn’t even straighten my arms. To top it of The guide Gunner just talked total crap the whole way , nothing about the lights or what we might expect to see just total non stop nonsense. On getting there we were told to get out into the snow and wait . We waited for 4 hours . No attempt To move anywhere else with better chances or at least admit defeat and stop us wasting time and just go home. Totally overpriced lights or no lights
